Special Forces cook killed in Jordan was on second deployment | ArmyTimes

A 23-year-old cook assigned to a deployed Special Forces group is the fourth soldier from that unit to die during their current mission.

Spc. Isiah Booker was operating construction equipment when he was killed Saturday in a non-combat related accident in Jordan, according to a Defense Department release. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group. Three Green Berets were killed in November after they reportedly came under fire while entering a Jordanian military base. Like Booker, the soldiers were deployed to Jordan to support Operation Inherent Resolve.
